    I agree, Im still stuck on the grounds, especially after the mechanics report.
    Are the new valve coverrs properly grounded, the hold down fasteners didnt have insulators or excess gasket material stopping them from grounding did they?
    Ive seen issues similiar to this due to inadequate grounds on the coils.

    To my knowledge no there wasn't any insulation, just metal on metal, but then again I haven't been under the hood of my truck in a week.

    Well another day goes by without the truck. Hate that I have to call each day to find out the status

    Almost after two weeks I am now leaving to get the truck back. Here something in the wiring harness to the packs got messed up. Just glad to be able to drive it again. Hope I don't pass out when I see price

    He said the coil pack sub harness was messed up and needed to be replaced. Price tag was 633.99, that was after complaining about the time it took. That was two thirds the price he would've charged. Said it took 7 hours. Needless to say the garage took advantage of me, royally.

    Oooh that sucks!!! But look at it this way, at least he found it and got it running. The Chevy dealer would have charged at least $1,000 if not more, fancy tools don't make a better mechanic IMO.

    I don't know, I was thinking it would've been cheaper. The day before he finished the job I called Apple Chevrolet up to check about them taking on the project and they said that the wiring harness was most likely the problem and would be the first thing they replace.
